Kitchen Tips Tuesday- Keeping it juicy in the crockpot!

With fall underway, the crockpot is in use now more than ever! A great meal that requires little effort is Pineapple Ham in the crockpot. I pick out a precooked ham at the grocery store that will fit in the crockpot. Then, I use a large can of Pineapple Juice. I pour half the can of juice in, then the ham, then a can of crushed pineapple, finishing with the remaining pineapple juice. Set the crockpot on low for about five or six hours, and you have a delicious pineapple-flavored ham. Mashed potatoes are a great side item, or try some macaroni and cheese for a quick alternative. The tip to getting the ham juicy and full of pineapple flavor is to take a knife and make half-slices around the ham- just enough to let the juices soak in. The result is ham that is juicy and full of flavor, instead of dried out meat. Enjoy!
